Steed fights in the dark
Cathy exposes a millionaire's precious light

Production completed: 11 October 1963
UK Premiere (London, Season 3): 16 November 1964
US Premiere (A&E cable): ca. 14 March 1991

An unusual eye graft procedure requires Steed's participation to transport live corneas from Switzerland to London. But Cathy and an eye surgeon question the procedure, and their investigation costs the latter his life. The intended recipient of the grafts, blind since the war, is unable to see that, not only is his fiancée locking lips with his partner in crime, but that the jewels Steed is transporting are intercepted.


Sorry, the plot is as confusing to me as it appears to be to the characters. Worthwhile, however, for Peter Bowles' fine performance and the sharp dialog between Steed and the blind Halvarssen.
